What You Can Expect

Elafiti Islands Cruise from Dubrovnik

Sail around the gorgeous Elafiti Islands of Croatia!

Explore the beautiful islands off the coast of Croatia by sailboat – a replica of a historical galleon – and experience breathtaking views of the Dubrovnik region. During this cruise, you will visit the three most beautiful islands of the Elafiti archipelago: Koločep, Lopud and Šipan. The legend of the Elafiti islands is hidden in its name; it derives from the Ancient Greek word for deer – an animal that the Greeks used to hunt on the islands.

After docking at each island, enjoy free time to explore and discover lush gardens, orchards of oranges and lemons, and rugged coastal scenery. Walk around the charming island villages and soak up the sights, seeing old manor houses overlooking the quaint fishing villages and churches near the seafront.

Halfway through your sailing adventure, while your boat is docked at Šipan's pier, sit down to a delectable lunch of grilled fish, accompanied with wine. As you eat, soak up the island views and listen to live traditional music, performed by onboard musicians. At the end of your day, return to Dubrovnik Port and finish your experience with a hotel drop-off.

Great day, very well organised. We had to change the day of our trip and this was not a problem even though it was peak time. We were picked up and returned to our hotel which made it a lot easier. The musicians on the boat were great and very entertaining. It was good to get out on the water and see some of the islands. The staff were very helpful. Would thoroughly recommend this trip.

Fun way to see the islands around Dubrovonic, staff very friendly and lunch if you like fish was good. Very good value for money and would recommend to couples and families.

The galleon, fresh fish lunch on board, and the 3 islands we visited were awesome. I only wish when we boarded there would have been a brochure for us with some more in-depth information about galleons. Without our guide's brief history lessons at each island, the trip would have been far less interesting. We had just the right amount of time to explore each island. The trip was definitely worth the amount of money charged. We were on the last cruise of the season so it is was almost filled to capacity.

Although we were told the family on Sipan did not allow visitors inside, the door was open and I walked in. I was turned away as a group of some 20 people were on a private tour. Not sure how they could tour and we could not. Perhaps Viator/local tour company could check further. Someone is getting tours.

Amazing experience! Lopud was my favourite island. Definitely go to Sanj beach in Lopud, it is worth the trek.

Such a fantastic day out. Elite tours really are great. We did the Game of Thrones walking tour with them and we got the same guide! She was fantastic on both tours. This tour is as relaxed or as involved as you want. If you don't like fish I don't, I know it's a waste in Croatia, but still, you can request a vegetarian meal which was really nice. I totally recommend going to the sandy beach on the final island by taking a golf cart taxi for around 2 return. Great fun. Would totally do it again.

Fantastic and unique way to enjoy the islands off Dubrovnik! Get a seat at the stern rear of the boat for the best enjoyment of views and waves :- everything is taken care of, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy. Lunch with water and white wine is included, but you can also purchase additional drinks as you wish. You get about an hour at the first two islands which is just enough time to explore their main sites or laze on their beaches. About 3 hours is spent on the last time, which is perfect for soaking in the rays, having an ice-cream it's straight after lunch, so perfect time for dessert, exploring and enjoying the water. I really enjoyed this short cruise.

great day out and fantastic trip well worth the time and money

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Excellent day trip with amazing landscapes and seascapes. The galleon adds a bit of spices to the trip, which is, anyway, of a very good level. The food was not something special, just O.K. All in all a very pleasant day.
